harry reid said he was reassured they're moving away from their all-or-nothing proposition. but overall what this is trying to do is give the house the ability to pass an extension and say to the house or senate if they don't move further, we've done our job, now it's up to you guys. there's definitely some posturing involved. >> at a time when we're seeing so many positive indicators, good news on the housing front, jobless claims are down, this kind of kicking the can down the road does not seem to be the kind of thing that would reassure small businesses or markets, wall street, anybody. >> well, look, it's better than not kicking the can down the road. it's better than having that debate right now because i think everybody on wall street and everybody who is in business thinks this is the silliest debate we could possibly be having right now. so to try to tie it to a budget proposal which is probably long overdue as we know, four years, is probably not a bad idea, but it's not nearly the same as not having this debate at all. so markets hate that. bankers hate that. businessmen hate
aren't the ones blocking this. the democrats aren't the ones -- >> speaker reid, harry reid, the leader of the senate, he's all on board for this, right? just want to make sure. >> i think leader reid is fine with it. in fact, they put out a statement supporting what the president did today. >> in two years, republicans and democrats are going to be measured at the ballot box. a lot is going to happen but the biggest thing that is going to happen is we're going to have time to see what works. not more false promises. >> nothing works, alex. >> is the president, for example, going to start enforcing the laws that we already have? his attorney general doesn't want -- >> cookie cutter -- >> why is the nra and its supporters so much more effective politically than the other side in dealing with this issue? >> poke be with me with a stick. money. >> why are there democrats -- and the antigun types, they have a lot of -- >> no, they are not. i'll give this to my republican friends. they are always better organized on the issues like this and they raise the money and the nra is effective in sc
it is the leaders who control the floor action and i think on the democratic side, the fact that harry reid in the senate is sounding pretty tepid about these right now and letting his lieutenants chuck schumer from new york and feinstein take the lead on this does not bode well for this legislation in the senate. >> bill: the one measure that most people believe is the most important and may be the most politically possible, i guess is the universal background check. the assault weapons ban is important. the high-capacity magazines important. but it's hard to argue that if you have a criminal background check required at a gun dealer, you would not do the same at a gun show. maybe that's the one thing that can get through. >> right now that does seem like it's the provision that has the most support on the hill. that as well as a lot of these mental health traditions that the president has put forth. you might see a little bit more agreement in those areas but i think what we saw yesterday from the republican side was definitely digging in when it came to the assault weapons and other part
